From the Back Cover:

Isaac Erb, a pioneer industrial photographer, turned commercial photography into an art. Between 1904 and 1924, he was commissioned to take thousands of photographs of Saint John businesses, factories, construction sites, civic events, public amusements, and even booths at the Saint John Exhibition. Captivated by his work, his clients also engaged him to preserve the lighter side of life: amateur theatricals, carriage, bicycle, and automobile rides, and family celebrations.

About the Author:

Grant Kelly, a graduate of the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, owns and operates Vintage Photo and Frame in Saint John. An expert on early commercial photography, he has modern negatives made from all of Erb’s extant glass negatives, which are held by the Provincial Archives of New Brunswick.
